Deadline extended for Minn. priest list release

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A judge has given the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis more time to release a second list of priests accused of child sexual abuse.

Ramsey County Judge John Van de North granted the archdiocese's request on Friday. The new deadline is Feb. 5.

Archdiocese officials went to court Friday morning to argue that the names of some priests accused of child sexual abuse should not be included in the list it had been ordered to file by Monday.

The second list updates a list of priests the church deemed "credibly accused'' that was prepared a decade ago.

Attorneys for the archdiocese argued that the court order requiring the release of the names is ambiguous and could harm the reputation of innocent priests.
